Rank the Players: Kings Hold Off Avs For Much-Needed Win

LA goes into Colorado and breaks their losing streak. Wheee!

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at Colorado Avalanche Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the worst team in the league, but thank goodness, it’s a win.

Adrian Kempe got his first career point, Trevor Lewis got himself a breakaway goal (at least, a partial breakaway goal), and Peter Budaj put together a second straight solid performance. The Kings needed two points with all their playoff rivals picking up points, and they got the win on the road. All that matters.
